Tuesday, Oct. 12, at Milford with 4:29 left in a scoreless game, Ces- pedes was sandwiched inside the penalty area, went belly down, took a nap and let the official sort it out. "One guy went. for the ball and the othertook out my feet," Ces- pedes said after his quick recov- ery and penalty kick propelled the V'tkings to their third 1-0 vic- tory in a row. 3 Just a week earlier Cespedes was awarded a penalty shot at In- dian River in the first 10 minutes of the game and converted the opportunity on a strike that had more spin than a ping-pong ball at the Olympics. Cape won 1-0 in a game in which the V'Afings had been outshot 22-1. Cespedes smiled when it was suggested he leads Cape in all categories, good and bad, and gets his 80 minutes' worth of ac- *tion out of every game. "I lead in cards gotten, goals scored and penalty kicks taken md made," Cespedes said. "There was a time when I had more cards than goals. That's ridiculous." ;" What may be ridiculous is a DAVE FREDERICK PHOTOS ZACH HARMON PROTECTS his house and kicks out the legs of a charging Regi- nald Mondelus, earning a yellow card but thwarting an offensive rush by the Milford Bucs. silently solid Cape defense that has helped the Vikings to five straight shutout victories and a 7- 2 record. Cape's only losses were both 1-0 to Salesianum and Seaford. "We .are a team on defense tak- ing pride in going for the shutout," said Tim Blackburn, who stands to the left of goalie Andrew Scrutchfield. Blackburn regularly faces the other team's strongest right-footed striker and like his goalie and mates in the back - Chris Young, Sam McMil- Ion and Darrell Kennedy - it takes a great play or unsettled situation to beat him.

Saturday there is a Home- coming Dance and one thing for sure, not many ancient alumni will come to the dance; in fact, maybe none of them will. Sat- A!rday is also Homecoming at Delaware State and I've covered that game a few times and those High lonesome sound - Back in my day, which is still every day, there were no bruised kidneys, no MCLs, ACLs, CAT scans, PET scans, hip flexors and no high ankle sprains. There was al- so no ADD, ADHD, ODD, dyslexia and no passive-aggres- sive insubordinate behaviors. alumni not only come home, but women - some of them grand- mothers - join the cheerleaders and others dance with the band. It is all just a great day. Now back to Cape. Laurel is a tough Homecoming game, never an "easy out" of the football field. Cape lost to Laurel 35-21 last year, game six, at the Bulldogs homecominin what always will be always B-e.xemembered as the Juggalo game. Don't ask! There were no rashes or skin conditions except athlete's foot and jock itch. It is a well-accepted truism that if you create any malady, in- jury or behavior disorder, people will quickly flU up the waiting room. "You Gotta Play Hurt" was a book written by Dan Jenk- ins in 1991, an earlier time when hurt was defmed differently than it is today. Wrenched knees, rolled ankles, sore backs and "cholly horses" were all condi- tions to play through when I was in high school, and if you were actually hurt more seriously, then you would really get hurt and possibly end up in traction to stretch your spine which they never do anymore.
